Dear All,
A one day symposium on "Antimalarials: Current Approaches and New Directions" is being organized jointly by Medicines for Malaria Venture (MMV) and Open Source Drug Discovery malaria (OSDDm) at CSIR-Central Drug Research Institute, Lucknow on 16th November, 2011. This is an effort to apprise the principal investigators joining the OSDDm platform of the latest developments in the design and discovery of new antimalarials. The conference will include lectures by Prof. Stephen Ward, Walter Myers Professor of Parasitology and Deputy Director at Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and Dr. Jeremy Burrows, Head of Discovery at MMV, Switzerland besides eminent medicinal chemists and biochemists from India working in the area of development of chemotherapy for malaria.
We cordially invite you participate in the symposium. The organizing committee will be happy to provide accommodation on twin sharing basis and local hospitality. However due to constraints in funding, travel expenses need to be borne by participants.
We look forward to receiving a line of confirmation towards your participation as soon as possible.

With best regards,
